Lovers jailed over cyanide juice poisoning murder of Melbourne man Sam Abraham

A FORBIDDEN love drove a Melbourne wife and her lover to fatally poison her husband in his bed using cyanide-laced orange juice.Sofia Sam, 34, and Arun Kamalasanan, 36, have been jailed for more than 20 years each for murdering Sam Abraham.Mr Abraham, 33, was killed at his Epping family home in October 2015 by his wife and her then-lover Kamalasanan.

The pair were brought to justice on Thursday by a Supreme Court judge who jailed Kamalasanan, deemed the โ€œarchitectโ€ of the poison plot, for 27 years and Sam for 22 years.โ€œSam Abraham was a young man asleep in bed at home with his family when he was killed by the use of poison,โ€ Justice Paul Coghlan said at sentence.โ€œI am satisfied that the poison was chosen as your murder weapon in an attempt to avoid detection.โ€ The judge said Samโ€™s young son was one of the most significant victims of the murder as he will grow up with no father and his mother in jail.
